Mods to get:

-Aluminum rear pivot block(Trinity, RCTrix, etc..)

-Captured ball ends or titanium ball studs for fr/rr camber links.(I use Mugen MTX-2 captured ball ends).

-A "Dace" brace, aluminum battery box or a battery box skid plate/protecter to reduce/eliminate battery box breakage.

As for engines I use an OS .12 CVR or a OS 12TR. The truck comes equipped for side exhaust engines though so you will need a rear exhaust manifold if you want to run a R/E engine.

The only thing I would add to FREAKAH's list would be Rocket City captured ball ends especially in the rear.

A Drake version RE Manifold is around $15.

You can get excellent results using an OS CV-R which is a side exhaust. Pick up the AE carb restrictors and you're set for almost any track.

Don't forget getting some shock springs and oil to set up for the track.

Pink Taper pins and firm inserts for high traction tracks with red directionals stock foam in front.

On loose tracks ????? check with the local fast drivers to see what they're using even if they drive a GT or MST.
